A new way to discover content on GotIreland.com

I’m always trying to improve this blog, and make it easy for people to find the content on here that they are looking for. The navigation bar, under the main logo, categorizes posts in a way that is helpful for users, and within each article you will find links to more content similar to what you may be reading.

Well now there’s a new way to discover content on ‘Got Ireland’. I’ve made use of Google Maps to create a map of Ireland with pinpoints for where content is available. For example if you’re looking for places to visit in the Dublin area, you can click one of the icons in the Dublin area, a bubble will open, and you can see that there are numerous posts related to Dublin, including one about Christ Church Cathedral, one for Dublin Castle, some about museums & more. Click the links within the bubble, and you’ll be taken to that article.

The map is in the early stages of development, and it will be a continuous work in progress, as I add new posts to it, as they become available. I will also be adding tours from the Ireland Tours website, and may expand it to include relevant content from other Irish websites.

I’d love if you try it out and let me know what you think? Do you find it useful? You can leave a comment below.

  1. This is a great addition. I love being able to find info at a glance. Keep up the fantastic work.

    • Cheers Corey. I appreciate the feedback.
      I plan on adding a thumbnail view in the sidebar to make it easier to find. A useful map in a hidden place won’t be very useful 🙂

  2. What a great idea, Liam. I love all your inventive ways to make navigation within your site so easy. You do a wonderful job keeping all your great information available at the click of a mouse.
    Best of luck with all your upgrades – I really love your site.
    All the best,
